1: But on the morrow of the sabbath, very early indeed in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the aromatic spices which they had prepared. 2: And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3: And when they had entered they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4: And it came to pass as they were in perplexity about it, that behold, two men suddenly stood by them in shining raiment. 5: And as they were filled with fear and bowed their faces to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living one among the dead? 6: He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you, being yet in Galilee, 7: saying, The Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinners, and be crucified, and rise the third day. 8: And they remembered his words; 9: and, returning from the sepulchre, related all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10: Now it was Mary of Magdala, and Johanna, and Mary the [mother] of James, and the others with them, who told these things to the apostles. 11: And their words appeared in their eyes as an idle tale, and they disbelieved them. 12: But Peter, rising up, ran to the sepulchre, and stooping down he sees the linen clothes lying there alone, and went away home, wondering at what had happened. 13: And behold, two of them were going on the same day to a village distant sixty stadia from Jerusalem, called Emmaus; 14: and they conversed with one another about all these things which had taken place. 15: And it came to pass as they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus himself drawing nigh, went with them; 16: but their eyes were holden so as not to know him. 17: And he said to them, What discourses are these which pass between you as ye walk, and are downcast? 18: And one [of them], named Cleopas, answering said to him, Thou sojournest alone in Jerusalem, and dost not know what has taken place in it in these days? 19: And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, The things concerning Jesus the Nazaraean, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people; 20: and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to [the] judgment of death and crucified him. 21: But we had hoped that he was [the one] who is about to redeem Israel. But then, besides all these things, it is now, to-day, the third day since these things took place. 22: And withal, certain women from amongst us astonished us, having been very early at the sepulchre, 23: and, not having found his body, came, saying that they also had seen a vision of angels, who say that he is living. 24: And some of those with us went to the sepulchre, and found it so, as the women also had said, but him they saw not. 25: And he said to them, O senseless and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26: Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory? 27: And having begun from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28: And they drew near to the village where they were going, and he made as though he would go farther. 29: And they constrained him, saying, Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is declining. And he entered in to stay with them. 30: And it came to pass as he was at table with them, having taken the bread, he blessed, and having broken it, gave it to them. 31: And their eyes were opened, and they recognised him. And he disappeared from them. 32: And they said to one another, Was not our heart burning in us as he spoke to us on the way, [and] as he opened the scriptures to us? 33: And rising up the same hour, they returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven, and those with them, gathered together, 34: saying, The Lord is indeed risen and has appeared to Simon. 35: And they related what [had happened] on the way, and how he was made known to them in the breaking of bread. 36: And as they were saying these things, he himself stood in their midst, and says to them, Peace [be] unto you. 37: But they, being confounded and being frightened, supposed they beheld a spirit. 38: And he said to them, Why are ye troubled? and why are thoughts rising in your hearts? 39: behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, for a spirit has not flesh and bones as ye see me having. 40: And having said this he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41: But while they yet did not believe for joy, and were wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything here to eat? 42: And they gave him part of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb; 43: and he took it and ate before them. 44: And he said to them, These [are] the words which I spoke to you while I was yet with you, that all that is written concerning me in the law of Moses and prophets and psalms must be fulfilled. 45: Then he opened their understanding to understand the scriptures, 46: and said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer, and to rise from among the dead the third day; 47: and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations beginning at Jerusalem. 48: And ye are witnesses of these things. 49: And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but do ye remain in the city till ye be clothed with power from on high. 50: And he led them out as far as Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. 51: And it came to pass as he was blessing them, he was separated from them and was carried up into heaven. 52: And they, having done him homage, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53: and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God.
